An outlet for the urban imagination


MM Plude lives and writes in mid-Michigan, but her writing career will forever be linked to Chicago. From writing classes to writing weekends where she'd hole up in her apartment with her Labrador. Her two decades in the vibrant metropolitan area are particularly evident in the novel she is currently working on; a thriller set in the Chicago area.

But now time is precious, especially as a mother of three young children and working a full time job. That's why in addition to discipline, early mornings are critical to moving her stories and her writing career forward toward success. You'll often find Michelle up at 5 a.m. with a cup of coffee and the computer on her lap.
